The Wild One - Moto Jacket

As most women I like to shop for new designs, but I have some clothing items that I can wear over and over again. At times I plan to wear something different, but just before I go out I grab my favorite Moto Jacket instead. Modern Moto Jacket can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, and is timeless.

The original Ramones was designed in 1928 by Irving Schott. Thick horse leather jacket had a characteristic zip to protect motorcyclist from the wind. The jacket was popularized by movie stars like Marlon Brando, who played Johnny Strabler in The Wild One. Ramones Jacket had become a symbol of rebellion and for a while was prohibited to wear in many American schools. Other iconic movies that associated Ramones with trouble makers are: Grease (1978), Mad Max (1979, 1981, and 1985), and Terminator (1984).

  2. I love moto jackets! They've always been a favourite of mine because I always loved that greaser style from back in the day (and like in Grease). Great post X
